Everybody's Dancin' - Expanded edition - Kool & The Gang

Everybody's Dancin' - Expanded edition
KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as ‘Summer Madness,’ ‘Get Down On It,’ ‘Celebration’ and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick - Pulp Fiction; ‘Jungle Boogie.’

Towards the end of 1978 would see Kool & The Gang release EVERYBODY'S DANCIN', their 12th studio album. EVERYBODY'S DANCIN' is one of the groups least talked about efforts as its release came in between the groups two most successful periods of early to mid-seventies funk and late seventies/early eighties Dance/Pop. However in order to get a full appreciation of such a pivotal and influential group EVERYBODY'S DANCIN' should not be overlooked. This album exists perfectly between the realms of hard hitting funk and sophisticated soulful pop, pointing the way to the groups unprecedented worldwide success's over the following years.

The opening and title track, ‘Everybody's Dancin',’ is an eight minute plus dance floor masterpiece that keeps giving you more as the string sections come in over an array of incredible horn hooks and ecstatic vocals. It was the only single to chart from the album reaching #65 R&B in late '78. The other official single from this set is ‘I Like Music,’ a scorching mid tempo stomp declaring something we all already knew about this most dedicated of groups.

‘Big Chief Funkum,’ sits alongside "Open Sesame” from the album of the same name (CDBBR0045) as it provides a comical stereotype of Native Americans over a tough groove at a time when celebration of Native American culture was to the fore in the U.S.A. Both ‘You Deserve A Break Today’ and ‘Dancin’ Shoes’ (surely a nod to Miami's greatest hit makers of the time, K.C and the Sunshine Band) are very tight, satisfying slices of funk, while ‘Stay A While’ is the best ballad on the album. · BBR is proud to present EVERYBODY'S DANCIN'. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material. This BBR remaster is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

God Bless Tiny Tim (Deluxe Expanded Mono Version)
• BILLBOARD POP #7 ALBUM IN 1968!
• RARE MONO MIX: FIRST TIME ON CD ANYWHERE!
• FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

Born of that brief, inspired moment in time when the freaks almost took over, April 1968’s God Bless Tiny Tim is an otherworldly mission statement from the misunderstood pop culture icon who almost singlehandedly invented "other.” Featuring the Top 20 hit "Tip-Toe Thru’ The Tulips With Me.”

Produced by RICHARD PERRY (Captain Beefheart, Holy Mackerel, Fats Domino, Nilsson), God Bless Tiny Tim features many early 20th-century classics from the great American songbook, and tracks penned by PAUL WILLIAMS ("Fill Your Heart” was his first major album appearance), GORDON ALEXANDER (his "Strawberry Tea” was cut around the time Gordon was recording with CURT BOETTCHER) and more!

The extensive, full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes by Kristian Hoffman.

This DELUXE EXPANDED MONO EDITION features the original mono mix of the album, which has been out of print since 1968. Even then, copies of the mono LP were promotional-only for press and radio, making this mix an entirely new listening experience for fans. Also included are non-LP singles, and previously unavailable instrumental mixes showcasing the artistry of arranger ARTIE BUTLER in a way never before heard. Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

Produced for reissue by Steve Stanley.
